Aligning Learning Spaces with Pedagogy: The Instruction Librarian’s Role in Classroom Re/Design

How do we redesign our library classrooms to better align changing pedagogy and student learning? At the 2015 ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco, a panel of instruction librarians who influenced change in their learning spaces in support of information literacy programs discussed strategies for small and large-scale library classroom needs assessments and redesigns, the pedagogical shifts that the redesigns supported, and the impact of new learning space design on student learning.
